    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Choose your desired tour start time and travel independently to Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in central Krakow. Meet your guide outside and hear how the museum is housed in the very factory where the Nazi industrialist Oskar Schindler employed Jewish workers during WWII. Before starting, get an illuminating introduction to Schindler, learning how Steven Spielberg brought his story to the world’s attention in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler’s List. Then, head inside for your in-depth tour. Made up of interactive and photographic displays, the museum concentrates not only on Schindler’s and his employees’ work, but also on Krakow’s suffering during the run-up to war and beyond. As you explore, your guide will provide fascinating commentary, recounting poignant tales that will deepen your understanding of what happened here and Krakow’s history. Learn Schindler’s story and how his Jewish employees manufactured pots, pans, tins and other enamelware for the German army: a vital war effort that protected them from near-certain transportation to the concentration camps. See some of the products made here, view Schindler’s office, and hear the fates of some of the 1,200 Schindlerjuden — Schindler’s Jews — who worked in the factory. Follow your guide around the rooms dedicated to Krakow’s suffering during the war and later 20th century. View photographs of the terrorized city; be transported into the cobbled streets, resistance hideaways and prisons of the Nazi- and Soviet-occupied city; and get a sense of the overwhelming fear that gripped the population through original documents, artifacts, and film and radio recordings. After two hours of exploring, your tour ends outside the building. Say goodbye to your guide, who will provide you with directions back to the city center or your hotel as required.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at Oskar Schindler’s Factory Museum in the heart of Krakow. Before you begin your tour, get a brief overview of who Schindler was and why he became the inspiration for 'Schindler’s List,' Steven Spielberg’s iconic film. Inside the museum, photos, film, and eyewitness accounts convey the devastating effects of the Nazi occupation of Krakow, setting the stage for Schindler’s story. History comes to life as you learn the human tragedies behind major political events. The permanent exhibit has been widely praised for its artistic, interactive design, geared to transport visitors to wartime Krakow and relate its complex history in a manner both personal and deeply memorable. Uncover the stories that took place within the walls of Schindler’s factory, where employment protected over 1,000 people from deportation to concentration camps. Your guide answers questions and provide expert commentary to enrich your experience.

Visited on Sunday 12/01/2020; very informative site and many great pieces of history available to see. We’ll sign posted and easy to find. Sadly becoming over commercialised and in danger of loosing the historical importance.

I bought a guided tour package from getyourguide and the tour company was “Discover Krakow”. We had about 25 people on this tour and it was impossible to hear the guide during the most part of the tour. The tour company must limit the size to max 15 in my opinion. They must be
